RS Chairman Venkaiah Naidu rejects impeachment notice against CJI

Rajya Sabha Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu has rejected the notice given by opposition parties led by the Congress for impeachment of CJI Dipak Misra citing lack of substantial merit in it.

Rajya Sabha Chairman held extensive consultations with top legal and constitutional experts before taking the decision.

Seven opposition parties led by the Congress had last week moved a notice before him for impeachment of the Chief Justice of India (CJI) on five grounds of “misbehaviour”.

This is the first time ever that an impeachment notice has been filed against a sitting CJI.
